dc.description.abstractA frequency importance function, characterising the relative contribution of different frequency bands to speech intelligibility, was determined for a CNC monosyllabic word test designed for Australian usage at the University of Melbourne. The importance function was derived from the phoneme scores of 12 normally-hearing listeners who were tested under various conditions of low-and high-pass filtering presented at signal-to-noise ratios of -8 to +6 dB, using noise which was shaped across frequency 10 match the speech spectrum. The importance function showed a dominant peak at approximately 2000 Hz, which is consistent with previously published word test importance functions. The word test, along with the importance function, will be useful in advanced hearing-aid fitting procedures and research aimed at improving speech perception.en_US
